I am editing a short film that was shot on both 16mm film (about 30%) and 1080i HD (about 70%). The final output is SD PAL DVD projected onto a screen. I am new to creating mixed media workflows - can you please send advice about how to handle the two different types of footage, including best sequence settings for FCP 7?
To my knowledge, FCP is incapable of playing 16 mm film; it has no supply & takeup reels, for one thing.
Thus, you somehow must have had the footage converted to a quicktime movie.
It will be helpful to know how the film transfer was accomplished, the frame rate at which you shot the film, the frame rate of the footage following the transfer from film, its horizontal & vertical resolution and codec.
